The very first thing that went through my mind was that for sure she had her teeth fixed later on. I agree that it is a very bad angle. Loved her.


Terrible focal length but beautiful woman. I've been watching the Dick Van Dyke show all over again and she is just amazing. No wonder everyone was in love with her even before she had her own show.

I think she looks lovely

Shot by window light, and Earl moving in close with his probable Nikon 50/1.4, there is some distortion. But her teeth look real and just fine without Hollywood cosmetics and phoniness.

Tackling the Ivories

She must have eventually gotten her teeth fixed.

Ah the ubiquitous flip

My future wife and about 350 other girls at Pierce Junior High wore this iconic hairstyle in the early '60s. That is provided they had access to the copious amounts of hair spray needed support the infrastructure. Then if you wanted to rock the Jackie O look, you added the wide fabric headband.


That's probably not the most flattering picture I've seen of Mary. A bit much wide angle perhaps.

MTM Bad?

Mary Tyler Moore was a very talented and beautiful woman. This picture does not do her justice. Look at those teeth! Ack.
